This program features a super fun selection of favourite well-known nursery rhymes alongside exciting original works written especially by Libby! With something for everyone from singing along, interactive action and even using body percussion to “join the band”, March Along with EChO is a perfect introduction to the instruments of the orchestra, and our WASO musicians.

Captain Dynamics and the Supersonic Symphony! 

11.15am | Saturday 2 & Saturday 9 November

Get set for wild ride around the orchestra with Captain Dynamics and the Supersonic Symphony. Our fearless hero Captain Dynamics (Libby Hammer) is on a musical mission with EChO on a journey to fill the world with beautiful music for us all to enjoy. But sometimes the music is not what Captain Dynamics expects and she is caught off guard, with hilarious results!

Come ‘behind the scenes’ as Captain Dynamics and EChO explore some of the different elements of music.  Discover the musical alphabet, learn the difference between major and minor keys, and hear how different tempi can take a song from very slow to supersonic speed!  With excerpts from favourite orchestral classics as well interactive songs written by Libby especially for EChO, this program continues children’s introduction to our Orchestra, its music and musicians.  Created for children 4 and above (but equally engaging for little ones!) Captain Dynamics and the Supersonic Symphony is full of exciting music that will have our young audiences (and the young at heart!) feeling invincible in no time!

Suggested Ages: 4 – 6 years
Performance Length: 40 – 45 minutes
Meet the Musicians: Selected instruments at end of performance
Total Program Time: 60 minutes
